I loved running the Toboggan. It won money, I think they just had too many problems.
Ride the Zipper?

that is correct Flamo. Look at PGAM's diver. I do not know if it wins any money but it is a great advertising piece. Light show is outstanding and it will catch possible patrons eyes and bring them on the grounds to see what else is at the location. Same with shows that have converted their giant wheels to LED light shows but they are not making divers and true giant wheels anymore. Expo is a nice wheel but does not have the height.
